English: James Willis Nesmith ( July 23, 1820 - June 17, 1885) was a United States Senator and Representative from Oregon. Born in New Brunswick, Canada while his parents were on a visit from their home in Washington County, he moved with his father to Claremont about 1828. He received a limited schooling, moved to Ohio in 1838 and Oregon in 1843, studied law, and was admitted to the bar but never practiced extensively. He engaged in agricultural pursuits and stock raising, and was elected judge of the provisional government of Oregon in 1845. He was captain in 1848 and 1853 of expeditions against hostile Indians, and was United States Marshal for Oregon from 1853 to 1855. He was superintendent of Indian affairs for Oregon and Washington Territories from 1857 to 1859.
